Turn over the bucket day

15 posts in this topic

Today would be a fantastic day to be sitting on the ol' bucket pulling in the pannies, however I am stuck at work.

Anyone make it out on this beautiful day of warm weather and falling pressure?

I was able to get out for about 1/2 hour.

Sled, hand auger, scoop, rod with jig and a dozen waxies...no flasher because I knew where they would be. Also had my AA bibs and Sorels stashed in my car and used my lunch hour to fish a nearby lake.

Caught half a dozen perch, couple were kind of fatties. Are they full of eggs already? They seemed out of proportion to the length.

I crammed a sandwich into my mouth on the way back to the office. It was great!

Went out on Clearwater Lake near Nokay/Deerwood.

Caught my limit of crappies in a couple hours.

Was a mid-morning bite. They quit biting after 11:30am.

I wish it would've been a little warmer in the morning.

Was kinda chilly fishing on the ice. Should have brought the portable...

I was nursing a cold all day. I might make it out tomarrow with a hand full of dayquil and cough drops.

Got out with the kids today (6 4 and 3 yrs old) and had a blast. Went home with a nice bunch of crappies. Didn't even have to set up the shack until the sun set.

It was Seniors day out on the lake I was at. Sun was warm but the wind was cold. Met several retired fellas out enjoying the day.

I reversed what I normally do and sat outside in my t-shirt in the sun and had my rattle reels down in the fish house with the window open to hear them. Talk about enjoyable!!

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
